 A gravel pile in the shape of a triangular pyramid 2013-04-04 From Casey:Hello Right now I am stuck and I feel embarrassed because I feel like the answer is so easy I should know it. I am working on a project and need to find a volume of gravel it will take to occupy this triangular prism like area. I am not sure what formulas I should use whether it be that for the volume of a pyramid or something more complex? Basically it forms a right triangle at one side then from there all points slope to one singular point about 10412mm away. I am attaching a picture drawn up in paint with the actual dimensions to clear up any confusion. Thank you for any help. CaseyAnswered by Penny Nom.
